“It’s rare that one gets to work on a piece with such weighty emotional impact, so I was very interested from the start,” Satow explains. “I also knew that it was a risky project in many ways. So many people were deeply affected by the events that day. I knew I had to create something that would honor not only the memories of those lost, but also do justice to the emotions of the people that live on in the shadow of that day.”
While this won’t be our most public art piece, it is an exciting one. New directions — based on what was learned with the creation of the sculpture in Korea — are coming into focus. And, funny enough, this sculpture’s name will be “Focus.” It’s a water wall fountain for the lobby of a business, and water will flow down the mirror-polished reflective stainless steel surface, further activating the surfaces. Polishing 316 stainless steel is tough work, but the results are worth it. Here’s another sneak peek at this piece now that it is nearing completion.
Another sneak peek at the latest mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture in progress in the studio right now. Lot of welding, grinding, and polishing to go. Over 180 feet of welds to polish out on this one before it’s done.
Though the final design for this stainless steel sculpture is still a secret, here’s a sneak-peek at the latest work in progress!
Work on the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park Hawk Sculpture for El Paso, TX is nearing completion. Below are photos of the stainless steel hawk sculpture with its final oxide patina, the corten steel tree sculpture with a rust finish, and the five related signs that will be placed in different areas of the parks, just prior to getting their rusted finish. The bird sculpture will be mounted at the top of the tree, and the signs will receive graphics that describe the flora and fauna of the park.
The public art for the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park is coming along nicely. The stainless steel hawk will eventually get a special patina that will lend it the bronze-like tones of the animal sculptures I made for the Denver Zoo. Here’s a couple of photos of the hawk in its current state:
The next big public art piece I’m working on is a Harris hawk for the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park in El Paso, TX. This photo shows the stainless steel wings for that sculpture, currently in progress. As shown here, the wing span is almost eleven feet wide.
Here’s a video showing the progress on the wing for a Harris Hawk sculpture for the Rio Bosque Wetlands Project in El Paso, TX. The fabrication of this stainless steel and corten public art sculpture is going smoothly and the installation is currently scheduled to happen in about four months. Stay tuned for more progress pics and video!
